    Well I believe they have different kits that you can get. But I have them both for front and back. My front air lift bags, they came with the air bags, mounts bolts, air lines to go from the bags to the back of your truck. I believe mine were between $200-300.

    I also have a f350 diesel, the only reason I have them is because I have oversized tires that are wide with my pro plus i get more than enough room. Air bags can be 5psi-100psi.

    I would go with the firestone too. I had a minitruck (I know, completely different application) that I built using air lifts and one of the rear bags blew on me for no reason. I had to drive home about 30 minutes with my back bumper dragging on the ground, throwing sparks everywhere. Luckily there were no cops around! I replaced them with firestones and didn't have any problems after.

    Air bags = those things that explode out of your steering wheel when you crash.
    Air SPRINGS = what you're talking about.
